Good boy, Jonathan. Here's a biscuit.
On the one hand, you have a powerful statement by Bill Moyers on why Scooter Libby deserves to be in prison. And on the other hand, you have Blogging Tory Jonathan Strong, being his loyal and obedient, right-wing stenogrepher self.
I will give Jonathan credit -- blogging sure is a lot easier if you just reproduce what people hand you. I'll give that a try some day when I no longer have any pride.
LET ME EXPLAIN THIS VERY SLOWLY, WAYNE. Scooter Libby was not sent to prison for outing Valerie Plame. Or for breaking the "Intelligence Identities Protection Act." Or for any other rubbish that Hitchens wastes his time on.
Scooter Libby was convicted for perjury and obstruction of justice during the subsequent investigation. In short, he was convicted for what he did after Plame was exposed as a covert CIA operative.
Now, what part of that do you just not get?
